Hi there.  Here is my windows version. Use this information on your own risk.

This script will give you the possibilty to convert RAF files to DNG files for automatic import to Capture One on Windows.

The lack of the possibility of direct importing my RAF Files from the Fuji GFX 50S into Capture One and the boring work every time to convert it manually, was the reason for this solution.

This workflow will …

1. Import files with X-Aquire to a folder named “fuji-import”
2. Watch this folder for new files in “fuji-import”
3. If there is any new RAF file in “fuji-import” start the conversion script automatically do the conversion with “Adobe DNG converter” and export it to a folder named “fuji-dng”
4. Modify the new DNG File with exiftool and export it to folder named fuji-exif folder.
5. Delete the old RAF and DNG files you already converted and wait for new files.
6. In Capture One change to your capture folder to fuji-exif folder and you can see the DNG Raw Files

If this is useful or useless for anybody … I don’t know … but for me it is working. Thank you for any hints or corrections relating to this mini project or my bad english 😀

If everything is installed correctly … you only have to start my watchdog script watch-4-folder.
Anything else is done by the batch. DNG files will now be easy to open in C1. Installation takes you 5 minutes !!!

Getting started  … 🙂

Software you have to install:  fuji x-aquire, adobe dng converter, exiftool, wacht-4-folder tool W4F25.exe and my script (links below)
Rename exiftool-4.exe to exiftool.exe and copy it to your user\pictures folder.

I will not explain how to install this things. They have better descriptions and they are straight forward and easy to install. And if you do not understand … you better stop here 😉 😀

Next you have to install the watch 4 folder program. It is a little program to watch any changes in a directory.

http://leelusoft.altervista.org/watch-4-folder.html

download tool here

If you have extracted the zip.file, you have to start the program W4F25.exe and do some configuration below
First select the “Watch-Settings” TAB
1. Select the directory where you will import your RAF Files (in my case d:/fuji-import)
2. select on file create
3. execute program (here you have to select my batchfile  convertdng.bat)
4. write “fujiimport”
5. apply

Then Select the watchlist TAB … select fujiimport and start watching

Download and install it. Use the watch-4-folder program to start my batchfile convertdng.bat
You only have to do it if you wish to do the conversion autmatically as soon as new files are coming from x-aquire to the fuji-import folder.

Fuji-exif will be the folder for the modified DNG files, the place where Capture One capture folder

You have to create three directories
fuji-import, fuji-dng and fuji-exif.

In my case i will create the folders on Volume D:

d:\fuji-import

d:\fuji-dng

d:\fuji-exif

 

If you want to create the tree directories on one other volume than D, then you have to change the correct the path in my batchfile.
For example your folders will be on Volume “C” then you have to change the lines  from “set fimport=d:\fuji-import” to  “set fimport=c:\fuji-import” and so on 😉

download convertdng.bat

 

 

 

UPDATE 1.2

I did have some errors with x-aquire.  So I redesigned my script convertdng.sh again.
Different code now.

UPDATE 1.1

I did have some errors while photographing to fast.  So I optimized my script convertdng.sh.

Hi there. I am not a native English speaker, so my grammar will be horrible. Sorry for that. I am a photographer and writing this description was not easy for me. I have done my very best. Use this information on your own risk.

This script will give you the possibilty to convert RAF files to DNG files for automatic import to Capture One on a Mac.
Or if you just use part of it … convert your RAF to DNG on demand.

Capture One could read JPG Files but not the RAF files from the GFX.

The lack of the possibility of direct importing my RAF Files from the Fuji GFX 50S into Capture One and the boring work every time to convert it manually, was the reason for this solution.

This workflow will …

1. Import files with X-Aquire to a folder named “fuji-import”
2. Watch that folder (tool fswatch) for new files in “fuji-import”
3. If there is any new RAF file in “fuji-import” fswatch starts the conversion script automatically and converts it with “Adobe DNG converter” to dng and export it
4. Modify the new DNG File with exiftool and export it.
5. In Capture One change your capture folder to the fuji-import folder so you can see the DNG Raw Files

If this is useful or useless for anybody … i don’t know … but for me it is working.

If everything is installed correctly … you only have to start my watchdog script startfswatch.sh.
Anything else is done by the scripts. DNG files will now be easy to open in C1. Installation takes you 5 minutes !!!

Getting started  … 🙂

Software you have to install:  fuji x-aquire, adobe dng converter, exiftool, fswatch and 2 of my scripts (links below)

Please download and install X-Aquire, adobe converter, exiftool. I will not explain how to install this things. They have better descriptions and they are straight forward and easy to install. And if you do not understand … you better stop here 😉 😀

Next you have to install fswatch. It is a little program to watch any changes in a directory and then start a script.

Howto for installing fswatch.

About the App fswatch ( it is a monitor program)

Install the App

  1. Press Command+Space and type Terminal and press enter/return key.
  2. Run in Terminal app:
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null
    and press enter/return key. Wait for the command to finish.
  3. Run:
    brew install fswatch

Done! You can now use fswatch. (we will do it later)

In our case, we use the command below for starting the importing script. (not now … if we are ready 😉 )

After you did install all mentioned programs and also stored my scripts under your homefolder you have to

  • Copy my scripts into your home directory
  • Create folders fuji-import in your home directory

If you want to change the directory you can easily change it in my script convertdng.sh.

In Terminal window you have to type in only once for installation

chmod 764 convertdng.sh

chmod 764 startfswatch.sh

 

Your configuration of  x-aquire should be, that you only store the RAF Files into ~/fuji-import folder

To start the automatic conversion you have to open terminal window and type in command “./startfswatch.sh”

How: Open the terminal window  with command + Space and type Terminal and press enter/return key
and type in “./startfswatch.sh”

THATS IT
